            I love the yellow noodles, use them all the time – here in Sydney they are always called ‘Hokkien Noodles’.

            They have a distinctive taste and texture – I’m struggling to think of a good substitute, but one possibility might be Japanese udon noodles, which I’m pretty sure have no egg. Of the same thickness, our Vietnamese grocers here sell a tapioca noodle.

            We have some great sellers of Mee Goreng here – I love the stuff – with everything in it – especially slices of fish cake :)

    Yellow noodles does not contain egg. It most probably contain a bit of yellow colouring. The ones that does not contain yellow colouring is light brown colour.
